The Center for Medical Humanities was established in the fall of 2013 and consists of a director, Dr. Linda Pessar, and a steering committee that brings together students, professionals, and academics from a variety of backgrounds who are dedicated to the advancement of the art of medicine at UB. We integrate humanities into the core medical curriculum, and we tap into resources in the greater Buffalo community to provide extracurricular offerings that complement and enhance that curriculum.
